This is a command-line option for the
mysqld commands (arg: Required).
A number between [0.7, 1] that tells defragmentation how full it should fill a page. Default is 0.9. Number below 0.7 won't make much sense.This variable, together with innodb_defragment_fill_factor_n_recs, is introduced so defragmentation won't pack the page too full and cause page split on the next insert on every page. The variable indicating more defragmentation gain is the one effective.
